Roasted beets

I think beets are one of those things that either you love or you hate. I’m in the love category, while hubs and the kids are firmly in the hate camp.

I roasted two weeks worth of CSA beets today, much to the hate camp’s dismay. They find the smell of cooking beets distasteful.

For those of you who are beet fans, have you ever tried roasting them? It’s super simple. Trim off the greens, give them a scrub, spread them on a baking sheet, and pop them in a 400 degree oven until tender. Depending on the size of your beets, it will take an hour or more.

After they cool down, the peels come off really easily.

I peel them all and stick them in the fridge for snacks and salads. One of my favorite ways to eat them is with goat cheese and a drizzle of Orange Olive Oil.
